Birchbox Breakdown

Birchbox Breakdown: While ‘wash and wear’ is fine and dandy for some, curly hair girls know that it takes a bit more effort to get gorgeous hair every day. To that end, Ouidad’s Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel is a lifesaver, with a unique formula that responds (read: defrizzes) to humidity. We love how the formula tames frizz and coaxes unruly curls into shape without leaving them crunchy.

How it Works

Heat-activated wheat protein protects hair follicles and stops humidity from causing frizz and amino acids and vitamin A add hydration and boost shine. And because the formula is water-soluble, it never feels sticky or crunchy.

How to Use

Separate damp hair into sections. Taking a nickel-sized drop of gel, rake through hands from roots to tips. Holding your ends, shake hair back and forth to define curls. Use a hair dryer with diffuser to set your style.

Makes my curls perfect
Purchased

I love this product! I use it with a leave-in conditioner and my diffuser. IT keeps my hair from frizzing and makes my curls shiny and not crunchy. Highly recommended!

Game changer
Purchased

This product is really all you need. I used to use curling irons to get my curls and waves to look the way I wanted them to, and I always wished I could have "wash and go" hair. This is the first product I've used that let's me finally have that! The great cut I got from the ouidad salon helps, too.

I have course and curly hair. In humidity I look like Bozo the Clown. This gel controls my frizz and leaves it shiny and smooth.

I have never been able to find a product for my combination curly.wavy hair that doesn't leave it crunchy and limp--until now. This product is a curly hair life saver!

Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel
Purchased

This is a great product. I used it for a while with my curly hair and was quite impressed. I know my sister is always looking for products to control her curls and the frizz caused by the humidity,so I gave half the bottle to her to try. She loved it! She only uses it now if she is going somewhere special.She SAVES it she says! Guess I'll surprise her with her own bottle soon.Or introduce her to BirchBox!

my fav
Purchased

I have VERY curly but fine textured hair. This is my favorite product to give my curls shape and help them keep them. Must be paired with a moisturizing product for me, especially in the winter, but i love the non-crunchy, non-sticky definition this product gives my curls.

Lightweight, Great Hold
Purchased

I really enjoy using this gel, it does a great job with my unruly curly hair.

Two cons that prevent a 5 star rating for me.
1. I have to use a TON of product to style. I ran through this bottle in almost no time. I think people with curls that can get by with a bit less hold will find this gel to be just perfect.
2. It has dimethicone as an ingredient and doesn't work well with the curly girl method since it can build up.

I can say that it is very easy to work through my hair and reacts very well to diffusing. Bouncy, happy curls!

Great for my thin curly hair.
Purchased

I have a ton of hair but it is thin and curly. It is very difficult to find a gel that doesn't weigh down my curls or make them frizzy. I went searching when I found out my favorite gel had been retired. I love that this gel lasts and makes my curls soft and bouncy. It is one of my new favorite products!

Good for Frizz
Purchased

I like this product. It's good at taming frizz. I have tried a few other products that are better (that i got as other samples from my birchbox!) that i use more.
